Just a theoretical question. What happens to the healthy or "good" fauna in your mouth every time you brush with a germ killing toothpaste??

  • Tooth pastes along with the tooth brush will remove the plaque and calculus from the teeth. Plaque and calculus have bacteria present in them which are removed by foaming action of the tooth paste and the tooth brush.  There are disease causing and good microbes present in the mouth. Germ killing tooth paste will remove the bacteria which can cause gingival and periodontal disease. Tooth brushing will help in maintaining good oral hygiene by maintaining the level of microbes in the oral cavity and suppresses the bacteria which cause gum diseases.
